In My Garden

17-06-22

It’s 30 deg. C / 86 deg. F in the uk today, quite hot for this country. I decided to walk to the hairdressers and have what meagre hair I have shaved to a No. 2 setting, feels so much cooler. Then walked on into town to pick up some essentials, it was quite busy, but I can’t help but think back to the 60’s & 70’s and how lively the city centre once was. Stopped off at my favourite café, had an iced Americano coffee and a homemade cheese scone.

Yesterday I took a few images around the garden with my macro lens, still trying to get the hang of it.

Wild Strawberries.

Thursday Doors

16-06-22

A few more doors from my walks into town. Check out Dan Antions excellent “Thursday Doors” blog to see a selection of doors from around the world. I no need to get out and about to add a few more doors to the archive.

The gatehouse at the local park with flower beds.

I’ve never seen this shop open, lots of interesting stuff inside.

Have a cigar. Couldn’t resist the curved window.

Wear & Tear.

*******

Always like a Green door.

One of my favourite doors, the door to the music pub I go to.

Flat Battery

13-06-22

I haven’t used my car for over a fortnight as most of the places I’ve been to recently have been either in the city centre or involved drinking beer. Yesterday I thought I ought to give it a bit of a run, switched on the ignition, turned the key, got one spin of the engine then nothing. So I’m now waiting at home today for a battery charger to be delivered. Why not have a bit of a sort out in the sitting room I thought, of course I got quickly distracted ! Found some buttons in a container that I liked the shape of and decided to make a bit of a still life with them, it was also a good opportunity to get more familiar with my Macro lens.

And finally a window from the same building as the door above. Loved all the different types of glass
used for repairs.

Bring The Paint

08-06-22

It’s the “Bring The Paint” event in my home town this month. Met up with my Photo Buddies last week and we had a walk around some of the areas that have been painted. We were so lucky with the weather, as it’s been really cold and dull for June.

Taken the week before, we were a bit too early !

*******

There was still a lot of painting going on, will probably meet up again with the Photo Buddies next week to see how it’s progressing.

3D specs needed

Scary

A bicycle for two

I used my old Sigma DP1 to take these images, but really struggled to see the screen at times. If we go back next week (weather permitting) I’ll take one of my old Olympus cameras with a viewfinder.

Sigma DP1 – Silver Efx

Spotted this (no accounting for taste) while I was out with the Photo Buddies last week. I have two (new to me) film cameras loaded up with film, both about half way through the rolls, but the weather apart from the odd day has been cold, damp, and grey, more like March than June.

Met my Photo Buddies in town today, it was great to meet up and have a few coffees and a catch up. Managed to capture a few down at heel doors for this weeks “Thursday Doors” post. To see some doors from around the world check out Dan Antions excellent blog.

I do like a green door, even if it’s a bit tatty like this one.

*******

Bit of a half porthole on this one.

*******

Past grandeur, I hope it gets restored.

Tagging, really !

Thursday Doors

19-05-22

A few more doors from my walks, mainly to the music pub or to meet friends at a pub in town. I’ve been trying to get my fitness levels up after testing positive for Covid at the beginning of March, I self isolated for 14 days and that took it’s toll as I spent most of the time in the house. Managed to walk 6 miles on Tuesday and it was OK, so getting there.

To see some Doors from all over the world head over to Dan Antions excellent blog.

The flowers above the door caught my eye on this one.

*******

The colour and window on this one.

The style of this one.

And this one on the right.

*******

A window to finish with.
